GALLICANO – [V0052] – Old Dairy On The River, Gallicano.
This unique detached property of sqm 315 situated on the river Turrite in Gallicano is only 50 minutes from Lucca. The property is about 150 years old and is built on rock. It comprises: entrance from the street on the ground floor into a small hall that leads onto a living area. Also on the ground floor are a bathroom with bath, a double bedroom and a kitchenette. The wall between the kitchenette and the living room could be taken out to create one room with the living area. The floors are in granite tiles and the windows are wooden framed with double glazing. The external shutters are in wood.
On the first floor which is reached by internal wooden stairs is a landing and two double bedrooms. One of the bedrooms still has the original terracotta floor and wooden beams.
The semi-interred area is reached internally by way of wooden stairs leading from the kitchen or by a separate entrance from the street. The separate entrance from the street is the old entrance that was once used as the entrance for the cows. The original stone steps are still in place and chips in the stone archway are still visible where the cows caught the stone with their horns. On this level there are 5 large rooms with cement floors and wooden beams and a bathroom with a shower. A small balcony can be reached from this level that overlooks the river and would permit fishing directly from the house! Also on this level is a room that is being used for wood storage. This level offers the opportunity to restore the lovely stone archways and wooden beams. The property requires modernizing.
Outside is a lovely large terrace of 70 sqm that overlooks the river and the old stone bridge. The terrace has been created from the ruins of a house that was bombed during the war when the stone bridge was bombed. The tiles need replacing on the terrace. It is registered as a war ruin. There is a small plot of land of 20 sqm next to the terrace that could become a garden or a vegetable garden. Next to the plot of land, attached to the main house is a small room that was once where the milk was sold. At present this room is being used as a garden shed. Also attached to the house is a large room/barn with a fireplace. This room/barn has a separate external entrance which is reached by way of a few external steps.
Next to the hay barn is a small church, The Church of Ponte Guelfino and next to the church is the original bridge the Ponte Guelfino which wasn’t damaged during the Second World War.
This is a very versatile property that could become a lovely family home or a holiday home. It could also become a B&B.
This is a quiet area of Gallicano although it is within walking distance of the village centre. Gallicano is a lively village with all the main services such as banks, school, doctor, chemist, sports facilities and a weekly open market.
